Burn Injury Cases

Personal Injury Attorneys: Serious Burns

Kansas City - Nationwide

Burn injury cases

Burn injuries are often the most physically and emotionally devastating type of injury for victims and their families. They can involve excruciating pain, prolonged recovery and a life that is permanently changed. In many cases, serious burn injuries lead to the wrongful death of innocent victims.

We represent burn injury victims. Our goal is to help our clients achieve compensation for their losses so that they have the resources to move forward with their lives. We aim to hold negligent companies and individuals accountable, to prevent future harm and to help our clients gain compensation for the pain they have had to endure.

$5,700,000 Settlement
Wrongful Death Fuel-Fed Fire/Explosion
Rolfe v. Daimler-Chrysler Motors Corp., et al.,

Stueve Siegel Hanson prosecuted and settled a wrongful death case involving the death of a young husband and father. Our client was rear ended by a drunk driver while our client was stopped at a traffic signal sitting in his Jeep Cherokee. After being rear ended, our client's vehicle burst into flames and he was burned alive because he could not escape the vehicle as the doors were jammed. The case was brought against the drunk driver that rear-ended our client, the drunk driver's employer who permitted him to drive while in the course and scope of employment, the local tavern/bar that served the drunk driver all of his drinks, and the manufacturer of our client's vehicle. Our clients were awarded $5.7 million as a result of the settlement, trial and appeal.
